Tags: Civil Procedure
In creating the Civil Procedure Anthology, the authors selected materials that, combined together, are designed to do several things. There are some background-overview materials, particularly on the nature of the adversary system and the development of the Federal Rules, to help students gain some perspective on civil procedure as a whole. In particular subject matter areas, the authors selected materials designed to help students begin the process of synthesizing the principles derived from the cases on which they spend most of their time, but that may also challenge them to question "received traditions" rather than accepting them unthinkingly. In areas that students typically find difficult, the authors include articles that explore the basic problems without oversimplifying them. In areas to which courses often give attenuated treatment, such as alternative dispute resolution, the authors have included a wide selection of comparatively short excerpts to give students as broad a view as possible.
